NEW YORK, May 15, 2014 – Close to 1,500 undergraduate and graduate students from across the country and around the world will receive their degrees from the NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies (NYU-SCPS) during Convocation ceremonies that will recognize them for their completion of rigorous, professionally oriented programs of study. The NYU home to learning and applied research related to key knowledge-based industries where the New York region leads globally, NYU-SCPS prepares students who are just beginning on their career paths, as well as those who are seasoned veterans.
NYU-SCPS Dean Dennis Di Lorenzo noted, “NYU-SCPS truly serves as an incubator for innovation and thought leadership in growing and evolving industries. Our students come from across the country and around the globe to acquire educational credentials that provide them with the access and opportunity needed to compete and succeed. Their diversity, drive, and determination epitomize the very essence of what an NYU education is all about. Through these Convocation ceremonies, we acknowledge and celebrate their hard work, sacrifice, and achievement.”
This year’s student Convocation speakers are prime examples of the unique individuals that NYU-SCPS attracts and prepares for personal and professional success.
